Meet Vanessa Cesario.

An agency owner, creative director and stylist based in Toronto. Truly a force of nature, her work ethic is strong yet free-flowing and her personal style is futuristic yet timeless. Read her responses to our rapid-fire questions below.


What are your passions?

To me, good food and good design make life worth living. I'm big on fashion, nature and wellness. Like many creatives today, I'm a true multi-hyphenate! I own a boutique creative agency called VLC Inc. and recently opened a multi-functional creative studio called VLC Studio in downtown Toronto. My day "job" consists of running both of those, so I wear quite a few hats!

What inspires you lately?

I've recently got super into vintage furniture, specifically space age designs. I go into holes reading about the influences of Ettore Sottsass, the Castiglioni brothers, Gaetano Pesce, etc.


What song do you have on repeat?

Mishima/Closing by Philip Glass, Kronos Quartet and Michael Riesman


What's your favorite season?

Spring! Sorry to be cheesy and cliche, but it's a hopeful time full of life :-)


What's next for you?

I'm just about to start organizing some pop-up/IRL experiences in my newly-opened studio!
